We've been teasing it since February, writing the intro since last August, and eagerly waiting to share the content since 2009! That's right, we've been dying to share this stuff with you since long before aLBoP was even a little personality dream <3 And now, it's ready! It's really ready!!
Ahem. Yeah, you can tell we're kinda excited ;)
What is Phase 2 and why has it taken so much of our time, energy, and gallons and gallons of love?
Since the day we started aLBoP, it's been our mission to help you understand yourself and those around you, so that you can feel safe and free seeing how awesome people can be. Through swatting stereotypes and showing how you can be a hero in your own unique way, we've worked to raise your expectations of yourself and everyone in a way that gives you hope that people can be more than culture tells us, and that science is just a matter of letting rock-awesome reality speak for itself!
aLBoP Phase 2 takes all that a great leap further, giving you a whole new arsenal of tools to be the person *you* want to be, not someone else, to pursue *your* dreams and ideals and make them happen, and to make your life what you've always known it can be.
And on top of all that, there's the forum! The Official aLBoP Forum, where you guys can all meet each other, share stuff, discuss anything and everything, and plot world domination together! There are so many of you who feel alone, like it's hard to find other cool people in the world. But since there are so many of you, we're so excited to see you finally get to know each other!
(Update: Hotmail users seem to be having trouble signing into the forum without creating a gmail account, but one of you mentioned a workaround, so if you need help, let us know!)
To make Phase 2 a safer place where you can freely talk about anything you want, we're using a self-invite system. This is to prevent people from ruining your discussions by wandering in, skimming a little, and leaving unhelpful comments. This way, you know that everyone else on Phase 2 cares about this stuff, at least enough to fill out a form and see what it's about!
So yay! Forum and a boatload of all-new Phase 2 content, with even more on the way! So go ahead, fill out the form below with the email you want to use on Phase 2 (for customizing your forum avatar and all that), and we'll send you your invite! You'll get two invitation emails, one for Phase 2, and one to participate in the forum there. Got that? Two emails. Good?
Once you get the invites, you can see the forum and all the Phase 2 content at albopphase2.blogspot.com.
(Update again! So...because we hit the limit on the number of people who can privately view a blogger site, we've temporarily created a clone site for all new invitees: albopphase2a.blogspot.com. The clone site lets you view everything the same, and you'll have access to the same forum with everyone else, you'll just use a different url)
So go ahead and submit that form! We can't wait to see you there!! <3

Hi! If this is your first time visiting A Little Bit of Personality (aLBoP as we like to call it in endearing tones), welcome!! I’m Calise and I’m *sooo* super excited to share this introductory, condensed, no-frills version of how people think and how to use that information to understand yourself and everyone around you!
The purpose of this series is to explain as crash-course-ly as possible the basic building blocks that form the 16 types of cognition. No prior understanding of cognition, psychology or personality types required (though a basic understanding of people, decent reading comprehension and a certain level of human decency are all requested). There will of course be many pictures. :D

Hey! This is Justin! Since I’m gonna be doing a lot of Phase 2, it’s probably good for me to say hi. It’s been awesome getting to talk to you guys over chats and emails, and I’m excited to finally get to do some character spotlights!
For this first one, we’re going to be focusing especially on how to type people. A lot of you have asked for help with typing people yourselves, so let’s walk through the process!
We’ve also convinced a couple of stick people, Gwen and Phil, to sacrifice their dignity and show us how *not* to type. They’re going to do their best to type correctly, using oversimplified, stereotypical methods and definitions, and we’ll see how they do.

Even $1 a month helps contribute to the bigger picture of aLBoP and shows us you care! <3 <3 And even if it's not a good time for you to be an aLBoP Patron at all right now, if you encourage your friends to support aLBoP, you still get the posts and content! Win-win!
We love you guys!! Thank you for all that you do! We can't wait to bring you all the things you love about aLBoP... faster, stronger, better! Yay technology!!!

Hello there! Hmm…trying to decide how to start this post. Lol
I’m feeling very happy :) and sometimes I feel like I'm always starting posts by rolling my eyes or saying something to the effect of “how many times do I have to say this?”, but today I feel contented and like everything is going in a good direction. Did I mention that we've had lots of great emails and conversations with you guys lately? That may be a super-large contributing factor! ;) Also my birthday is on Sunday (Golden birthday! 26 on the 26th!) and everyone was super sweet when I updated my profile picture on Facebook. It’s been a good week. :D
And so this post isn't about telling you guys you're doing something wrong or about trying to ask you to do more; it’s about saying “Thank You” for the things you've already done and asking you for feedback so that we can give you more content, get more of your questions answered and help you further on your way to being the most *you* version of you ever! Basically, we want to get feedback from you on how to give you more of everything that drew you to aLBoP in the first place. ;)
